Raveena Tandon takes on Censor Board

Raveena Tandon takes on Censor Board, feels there’s no need to sugarcoat things after getting an A certificate

Raveena Tandon is returning to the big screen with the hard-hitting Maatr. But there is a catch, the film has caught up in controversy with CBFC. It’s being reported that CBFC has refused to certify the film stating that it features two gruesome scenes that the Board apparently deemed inappropriate for viewing. Sources said, both the sequences, one among which involves the rape of the protagonist’s daughter, feature within the first 10 minutes of the film. It is reported that the committee apparently refused to watch the entire film after viewing these portions.

In an EXCLUSIVE interview with BollywoodLife, when Raveena was asked about the CBFC laws, she said, “Unfortunately we have such guidelines that will be followed by Censor Board. So honestly I can’t really blame anyone. Unfortunately we have certain laws and guidelines that have been made 70 years ago. They are still going on which need to be changed. We need to upgrade as per the times we are living in.”

 

When further asked if it has to do with the current Censor Board and if she feels the board of the past was more lenient. She said, “Censor Board has always been like that. There are certain guidelines that they have to follow. So there are things that even if you get A certificate, you are not supposed to show a slap, a woman being slapped. You are not supposed to probably have a couple of abuses which I find very strange. Even though you’ve got an A certificate this sugarcoating things is not gonna help.” 

This statement of Raveena is similar to what current CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani said in the past that they are just following the guidelines and those guidelines are archaic. About time these age-old laws be changed. As far as Maatr is concerned, the film will be screened in front of revising committee. Let’s just hope the film gets a proper release as scheduled by the makers, because as Raveena mentioned this a story that needs to be told.
